IHG Rewards Accelerate Promo 2017
IHG Rewards Club seems to have settled into gamified loyalty program promotions. Over the past couple of years they have held a number of different promos before finally settling on the name Accelerate. During Accelerate you receive a targeted set of tasks and earn bonus points for completing them. Fun!
If you like Accelerate then you will be pleased to find out that the promotion is coming back for a return in 2017. Via Rapid Travel Chai, the 2017 offer is good for stays from January 1 – April 15, 2017. Let’s take a look at what they offered me and my family.
My Wife’s Offer
Both my wife and my son received the same terrible offer. We won’t be going out of our way to complete this one.
As you can see this offer isn’t very good nor does it contain bonus offers either. Pass.
My offer isn’t the best, but it is certainly better than what my wife and son received.
I’m still not sure this is actually worth doing, but if we had plans that coincided with it then it might be a possibility. If we ignore the 5 nights part of the deal, I could earn just over 40,000 points for three 1 night stays at different brands including one stay in a big city.
Check Your Offers
In order to be eligible for the promotion you must register and view your offers. You can login, register and see your offers here.
I think we will probably be sitting out Accelerate in Q1 2017, however we do have a trip to Europe in early April to an area where IHG is strong. Either way, some people will get good offers and some bad ones. It always pays to look and see if it makes sense to switch your loyalty for the quarter.
Did you get a good offer? A bad one? Please share in the comments!
